    I was so struck by these words – but inside of the crap there is an actual story that I am telling, and therein lies the magic. Yes indeed – it is that knowledge that keeps us going!

    It’s amazing how different writers write. My finished novella is complete at ~24k words, and it took me a year from start to end. And that 24k is the longest it’s ever been! I’ve been working on my novel for less than 6 months, I believe, and am already past the 27k word mark and going strong. I totally pantsed the novella, and had to go back and rewrite a ton of it several times. This current novel WIP was my first foray into outlining and pre-planning, and I’m finding it so much easier!


Feel like sharing some thoughts?
